What Are 2017’s Best Cities for Valentine’s Day?
There's a reason people leave their hearts there.
WalletHub has come out with its list of the best places for Valentine's Day. The site used a comprehensive formula measuring 20 different factors in four different areas: budget, activities, gift accessibility and weather forecast.
San Francisco has the honor of finishing first, while Scottsdale, Ariz. took the silver. For all the talk about romance, Valentine's Day is big business: people are expected to spend $18.2 billion for the holiday. That's billion, with a "b." Of course, since San Francisco is first, maybe some of the cost will go toward flying out to the Bay Area.
The pressure to get a good gift is certainly on, since more than half of all women say they'd dump their partner if they fail to give a gift.
